The South African Bush Tea:
Rooibos tea (pronounced ROY-BOSS) is only grown in Cederburg, a small mountainous area in the region of the Western Cape Province of South Africa. This sweet, nutty, and caffeine free brew gives you a delicious dose of antioxidants and acts as your body's own natural detoxifier.
DID YOU KNOW?
Some rooibos is green and some is red!
Green and red rooibos come from the same plant, but the difference is the curing process. Immediately after harvest, green rooibos is lightly steamed to halt oxidation, retaining the green color in the leaves, whereas red rooibos is oxidized.
For centuries, South Africans have used this herb for medicinal purposes.
Rooibos contains several antioxidants, which are important for human health because they stop free radicals from damaging cells in the body.
In a 2011 study, 40 people at risk for cardiovascular disease saw decreased levels of bad cholesterol after drinking rooibos tea for six weeks.
Rooibos can be applied topically to reduce wrinkles, improving the appearance of your skin!
